Sporting Goods :: 5 Things Today (#1 of 50)

I just looked at my blog posts, and it occurred to me I’ve been neglecting my readers and followers.

Sorry I’ve been away for so long.  Life has been…hmmm…busy lately.

So rather than ramble on for countless paragraphs, I’ll keep it short and promise to keep the positive vibes bumping over the next few months. Five things, four times per week. That’s a solid 20 shares per week. And Venti=20, so after three years of doing this thang called Ventipop, at least the name finally makes some sense.

Enjoy and share you bastards.
